Stampede | June 2020


Welcome to the Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop!

Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!

I’m sure you can imagine how excited I was just reading “Little Agenda Spaceship” for the first time, and when I saw the stamps I got even more excited! So, I pre-colored a whole bunch of images from the stamp set – if you want to see the colors I used, you can find a color map at the bottom of the post.

For today’s project, I created a fun circle slider card on a galaxy background. 

I started by inking up my background using purple, yellow and turquoise and a whole lot of dark blue and black ink. Then I splattered it with white and silver paint to create the stars. After it had dried completely, I cut it out using the Basic Rectangles dies and then two of the circles from Basic Circles to create the slider track. Using the rectangle piece as a guide I glued down the “frame” piece directly to the card base. Then I popped up the smallest circle using foam tape – make sure the tape is not too close to the edge of the circle, as a coin needs to be able to move along the track.
I placed the coin in the track and then popped up the rectangle pieces as well, before adding the space ship with the bunny inside to the coin using a small foam circle.

Then I added the earth and moon inside the smallest circle and surrounded them with stars. 

For the sentiment, I stamped the “I love you to the moon and back” from Wish upon a star on the banner from the Basic Set, and added it with a bit of foam tape. Then I added the little astronaut and more stars.

Totally in love with how the space ship goes around and around the card!
